A love for dentistry from your gentle Turlock dentist
I became a dentist at the advice of my father, and have been practicing since 2004. I love the creativity and artistry required to reconstruct a smile, and the new sense of self- esteem and confidence in a patient at the end of treatment. The people I care for are wonderfully diverse, and I spend time talking with them, hearing their stories, and learning about their backgrounds. These exchanges are incredibly rewarding and what I look forward to each morning. I put my heart and soul into my practice and into my patients. This isn’t just a job: this is my passion. I love helping my patients regain confidence in their smiles, one person at a time. When someone doesn’t feel good about the condition or appearance of their teeth, is in constant dental pain, or has less-than-optimal oral health, every part of their life is affected. Not only do they smile less, but oral health is connected to overall body wellness, so when the mouth isn’t healthy, the body doesn’t function as well as it should. As a dentist, I am able to improve a person’s smile, so they are happier. I am also able to get them out of pain and improve the health of their oral cavity, so their body is healthier, too. I strive to place myself in each patient’s shoes, to understand their concerns and anxieties, listen to them, and provide a safe, calming environment in which to receive their care. Dentistry is about caring and healing, and I love that I am able to do both.
